In the early ‘90s, cult filmmaker Wong Kar Wai and fellow Hong Kong director Jeff Lau established Jet Tone Films, an independent product company that has been responsible for some of the most remarkable films to have emerged from the region. Eric Kot Man Fai’s directorial debut tells two tales of first love, before and after. In the first, Takeshi Kaneshiro (Chungking Express) stars as a garbage man who falls in love with a sleepwalking young woman (Lee Wai-Wai). The second is about a convenience store owner (Eric Kot Man Fai) who is troubled by the return of an old lover whom he jilted years before. Semi-experimental in approach, the film explores similar themes to Wong’s highly visual romantic style whilst also showcasing the director’s unique voice and creativity.
